Direct Hit have debuted a video for "Welcome to Heaven" from their forthcoming new album Crown of Nothing, which drops officially on Sept. 23 on Fat Wreck Chords. The video was animated by Walker Dubois and the album itself was produced by Mike Kennerty (Masked Intruder, Screeching Weasel).
On the new record, the band says:
Crown Of Nothing describes the relationship between a vengeful angel, put to death by a demon she then torments in the afterlife for eternity,” Woods begins. “Day after day, for an unknowable amount of time, he wakes up, meets her again, and is systematically tortured and dismembered before being stitched up by a ‘heavenly’ host of characters and made to endure the same treatment upon revival. He deserves the punishment, and she deserves her vengeance if heaven is indeed a place where righteous existence and tragic death is met with divine reward. But she eventually finds herself asking how meaningful that reward is in the face of infinite time—and that existential crisis eventually gives the demon the upper hand. Crown Of Nothing is about how the angel finds meaning in the afterlife beyond her vengeance, comes to terms with anger, and ascends beyond our human perception of death.
Direct Hit are also lined up for performances at Riot Fest in Chicago and The Fest in Gainesville.
